See the teacher's notes for this video. There he shows how to convert pixels to ems. From the notes:

To convert a px value to its equivalent em value, we can follow a simple formula: divide an element’s px value by the parent element's font-size value.

In the task you are given an element px value of 20 and a parent element font-size value of 16. So you would have 20/16 = 1.25em.
